It is faster (don't get me wrong) and it does fix that annoying application focus problem (reason enough for me to update) but most people would be just as well served with 3.5. Especially if one avoids JavaScript heavy web applications, you're not going to notice much. Plus, if you're using a lot of JS heavy applications, you would be using Safari or Chromium anyway.

I just read this on the Ars Technica review of Firefox 3.6: "In a discussion about the Firefox roadmap, Mozilla informed us that they regard process isolation for plug-ins as a very high priority and hope to roll it out to users in a 3.6.5 update." That would get me to tell everyone to switch to 3.6 without a doubt.
